"A memorial volume to Yoko, it opens with some photos from the first Sentimental Journey, and includes photos of Yoko in the hospital and of her funeral. Wistful commentary by Araki. It closes joyously with a photo of Chiro [their cat] walking briskly in the snow." (IIZAWA Kohtaro, ARAKI's Illustrated Bibliography, in déjà-vu #4 : ARAKI Nobuyoshi (1991), p.90)
